Our Commitment to See Only Love

When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. ²As you see him you will see yourself. ³As you treat him you will treat yourself. ⁴As you think of him you will think of yourself. ⁵Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself. ⁶Whenever two Sons of God meet, they are given another chance at salvation. ⁷Do not leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. ⁸For I am always there with you, in remembrance of you [God’s Son].

The goal of the curriculum, regardless of the teacher you choose, is “Know thyself.” ²There is nothing else to seek. ³Everyone is looking for himself and for the power and glory he thinks he has lost. ⁴Whenever you are with anyone, you have another opportunity to find them. ⁵Your power and glory are in him because they are yours. ⁶The ego tries to find [power and glory] in yourself alone, because it does not know where to look. ⁷The Holy Spirit teaches you that if you look only at yourself you cannot find yourself, because that is not what you are. ⁸Whenever you are with a brother, you are learning what you are because you are teaching what you are. ⁹He will respond either with pain or with joy, depending on which teacher you are following. ¹⁰He will be imprisoned or released according to your decision, and so will you. ¹¹Never forget your responsibility to him, because it is your responsibility to yourself. ¹²Give him his place in the Kingdom and you will have yours. (A Course in Miracles, T-8.III.4:1–5:12. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

The ego denies our unity with our Creator and our brothers. This denial results in a sense of powerlessness because it denies the source of all power. It cannot acknowledge our unity with the Love in every brother and God because it would end its seeming existence. Our engagement with the ego’s thought system leaves us feeling lonely, unhappy, fearful and powerless. All this comes with choosing specialness instead of the universal Love that we are.

Everything that we perceive in the world is a reflection of what we believe we are. The ego shows us division and lack of Love. The Holy Spirit shows us unity and the limitless power and glory of God’s Love that we share and are. Today let’s support each other with our willingness and commitment to see only Love by accepting Christ’s vision. This is how we bring salvation to ourselves and the world.
